Bramble with care

1 GoodGymer made their way to help an isolated older person in Hammersmith and Fulham.

Ms V and Mr R have recently returned home following a period in Hospital. Mr R dislocated his shoulder and Ms V was worried they couldn’t cope with the garden on their own.

Ms V also liked having company and was keen to join in with clearing the brambles and weeds from their back garden. An hour was spent chatting about her life in Jamaica, favourite foods, the terrible fires in Hawaii and the fruits imported from the island. Ms V has been keeping the islanders in her prayers.

We cleared 3 bags of brambles and weeds. So many spikes but we were not going to be beaten. More could have been done by any of West London’s super GGers but V really wanted to help and chat, so that took priority over how much was cleared today.
